Gun Owners Correct Obama On Constitution
President Obama has a long record of misquoting the nation’s founding documents, whether intentionally or accidentally, repeatedly leaving out “God” or “Creator.”
Now the leaders of the activist group Gun Owners of America are correcting the commander in chief’s description of a provision in the U.S. Constitution.
In an open letter to Obama, the organization contends a statement on the White House website referencing the Constitution is wrong.
It states, “The Second Amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms.”
But the GOA letter argues the Second Amendment does not “give” citizens any rights.
“Rather, as the U.S. Supreme Court explained in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Second Amendment ‘codifies,’ ‘protects,’ and ‘secure[s]‘ a right – rather than ‘grants,’ ‘bestows,’ or ‘gives’ one,” said the letter, signed by GOA founder state Sen. H.L. “Bill” Richardson, Vice President Tim Macy, Executive Director Lawrence Pratt and board members Gerry Ognibene and Sam Paredes.
